are very worried that if the united states or europe imposes restrictions saying we will not allow imports from your factories unless they have the same standards as the united states, they worry these factories don't have the money to invest in the safety improvements and that these factories will lose lots of american and european orders and the factories will close and the workers with lose their jobs. i think what we need is for more companies, more western companies, western retailers like walmart or sears or disney to work closely with the bangladeshi manufacturers to make sure they have the wherewithal, the money and the will to improve fire safety, to improve the electrical systems to help make sure that there aren't more fires like the ones we so recently in bangladesh and in pakistan. >> jennifer: you talk about the big players like walmart an extremely profitable company who has subcontracted perhaps there is some willful blindness there. how much would it cost to upgrade the factories? is that something that reall

of one of the greatest conflicts this world has known, senator inouye volunteered for service in europe. and in our most decorated military unit, the 442nd combat battalion, he engaged in the fields of europe, in the hill country of italy in a moment of such personal sacrifice and remarkable bravery as to humble any who hear its details. in his service over decades after that moment, he proved what he showed forth on that battlefield -- that danny inouye believed in america even before america believed in him. that even in a moment of such immense injustice in this country, this man's great heart, his aloha spirit, his embrace of the american dream, even in the moment when it was made most bitterly unreal, to thousands of people across this country of japanese ancestry, he led us forward, he pulled us into the greatness that is meant for this country. so the star of senator inouye may have dimmed in this chamber, this chamber that is surrounded in its border by stars, but, mr. president, as i share with you the daily honor of presiding over this chamber, i will in the days and months an
